DKIM & SPF statement in DNS
« on: November 09, 2019, 09:43:20 am »
How do i add a SPF and DKIM text record in DNS ?
I also want this to be global to all my email addresses.
Please can anyone help.

I have got to the point that i have an encryption key but i cant add it into my DNS, well i don't know how to
and whether it covers all my domains.
Please help.

If someone could give me a sample of how it should look like with the various options then that would really help.
Just a basic layout example.

Should the value look like this: ?   

mydomain.com IN TXT "p=encrypted code"

I forgot to mention that i am hosting my own server and using EHCP
The problem i have is i don't know how to add this so that it works on all my email accounts.
for example:

mail._domainkey   IN   TXT   ( "v=DKIM1; h=sha256; k=rsa; t=y; "
     "p=My_great_Big_Encrypted_key_in_This_Space" )  ; ----- DKIM key mail for mydomain

Is it better to add the txt statement in a global template ?
I am really lost and just need some help in the right direction
I am lacking the knowledge on the format to enter the statements, how to do it global
and where the template file is so that i can edit it manually.
All i seam to come across are methods by using apps which defeats the object of learning.
